NXT Lacrosse Welcomes Ben Sataloff as New U-11 Head Coach

Parents and Players,

> My name is Ben Sataloff, and I will be the new head coach for the NXT U11 team.  First and foremost, I would like to say how excited I am to coach this group.  After only 2 evaluations and 1 practice, it is clear that we have a talented squad, and I firmly believe that this team can grow into something great.
> A little bit about myself-  I was raised in Baltimore, MD, and have been playing Lacrosse since age 8.  I went to McDonogh School, where I learned from some of the best coaches in the country.  I then went to SMCM and Washington College, both of which are elite DIII programs in Maryland, where I faced off and played middie.  Currently, I am an assistant coach at Whitney Young Magnet High School here in Chicago.  I have also been coaching with NXT since they moved out here over a year ago.
> I chose to work with the U11 group for a multitude of reasons.  Growing up on the East Coast, I have been lucky enough to be surrounded by the game my entire life.  One of the main reasons I moved to Chicago was to promote a similar community- one in which young players are introduced to the game in an exciting manner, allowing them to grow up both loving and respecting the sport of lacrosse.  During the course of our time together, I hope to give these young athletes a solid foundation of skills and understanding, working with them to understand what it means to be a lacrosse player.
> Overall, I am proud to be coaching your sons, and I hope I can give them the same experience that I was given.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have at
> Thanks,
> Ben Sataloff

Tom Meyers, Tristan Sporer & Payton Hollway Coach the Youth at Cradle Lacrosse

It's not a stretch to say that Cradle Avalon's second year was a major success.  For two weeks, more than 50 combined kids descended on Avalon Elementary School this August to partake in Cradle's final sessions of the summer, a fitting end to what was a record-breaking summer. There's no better way to do Cradle, either, than to run around all morning before hitting the beach. 

This year's Cradlers also had the added boost of being coached by some of NXT's finest coaches in addition to some of NXT's finest future coaches. NXT 2015 faceoff specialist Tom Meyers of Radnor and midfielder Tristin Sporer of Moorestown, plus NXT 2018 attackman Payton Hollway of The Haverford School, were on hand for both weeks to help spread the game of Cradle and give back to the game that has helped them develop so much. 

They did such a great job that we asked them to describe what their time was like coaching Cradle.  Read their reflections here.
